The reason I'm asking is I'm studying for the midterm right now and my instructor gave us a 'focus guide' to study from. There just doesn't seem to be a lot of info we 'need' to know for the midterm compared to what the lesson plan usually has. I took 201 through Rio and remember how the midterm and the final were, it just seemed with them that I hadn't studied the right info (even though I did pretty good on them, thanks to the essay portion). Unfortunately, my instructor is very hard on the essay portion so I can't really count on getting the complete 20 points there.
Did your instructors give you this same 'focus guide' and if so was studying that enough to do well on the midterm?
